The mountainous area occupies three fourth of the total area of Binh Dinh Province. The potential of landuse is very large. However, under the influence of irrational exploitation and natural disasters in the past, the land resource has declined, thus leading to the decline of forest resource. Furthermore, the increase of unused land and bare hills along with the decrease in the cultivated area seriously influenced on the ecological environment as well as the socio-economic development.
Industrial Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary topic to which
tools of modern biotechnology are applied for finding proper
proportion of raw mix of chemicals, determination of set points,
finding the flow rates etc., This study is significant as it results
in better economy, quality product and control of pollution. The
authors in this book have given only methods of industrial
biotechnology mainly to help researchers, students and chemical
engineers. Since biotechnology concerns practical and diverse
applications including production of new drugs, clearing up
When you fi nish this chapter, you should have some very practical skills. For example, you will know how to calculate your own car payments or student loan payments. You will also be able to determine how long it will take to pay off a credit card if you make the minimum payment each month (a practice we do not recommend).
The topics discussed in this chapter are financial statements, taxes and cash flow. On completion of this chapter students will: Know the difference between book value and market value, know the difference between accounting income and cash flow, know the difference between average and marginal tax rates, know how to determine a firm’s cash flow from its financial statements.
A new automated procedure for preconcentration and analysis of anionic surfactants in water using solid-phase extraction (SPE) in a flow injection (Fl) system together with an UV-vis detection is reported in this paper. The method involves extraction of blue coloured ion-pair complex of anionic surfactants and methylene blue into solid phase and their elution from the SPE column with organic solvent (chloroform stabilised with methanol) and subsequent measurement in an UV-vis flow cell at 650 nm. The system is well optimised before to apply for analysis of real samples.
This chapter explains how to classify transactions as operating, investing, or financing activities, and it explains how to create a statement of cash flows. The indirect method of determining the net cash provided by operating activities is illustrated within the chapter and the direct method is demonstrated in the appendix.
After completing this chapter, students will be able to: Explain how the allowance method of accounting for uncollectible accounts affects financial statements, determine uncollectible accounts expense using the percent of revenue method, determine uncollectible accounts expense using the percent of receivables method, explain how accounting for notes receivable and accrued interest affects financial statements, explain how accounting for credit card sales affects financial statements.
The main objective of the thesis is to identify the determinants of FDI flows and regional distribution in Vietnam. The thesis focuses primarily on answering the two questions: What determines the attraction of FDI into Vietnam? What are the factors that influences FDI distribution across Vietnam’s regions?
Chapter 17 - Statement of cash flows. After studying this chapter you will be able to understand: The major sources and uses of cash-operating, investing, and financing; why accrual net income and operating cash flows differ, and the factors that explain this difference; the difference between the direct and indirect methods of determining cash flow from operations;...
Valves are the controlling elements in fluid flow and pressure systems.
Like many other engineering components, they have developed over
some three centuries from primitive arrangements into a wide range of
engineered units satisfying a great variety of industrial needs.
The wide range of valve types available is gratifying to the user
because the probability is high that a valve exists that matches the application.
Structural Testing is used to verify the static strength, or fatigue strength of a component by applying measured loads to the test item. Testing can be done to failure, to contractual requirements or to validate finite element model predictions. DTB has successfully completed thousands of structural tests on items ranging in size and complexity from simple coupons to entire aircraft.
Fatigue Testing is carried out with the objective of determining the relationship between the stress range and the number of times it can be applied before causing failure....
The chapter on uniform flow in open channels is basic knowledge required for all hydraulics students. In this chapter, we shall assume the flow to be uniform, unless specified otherwise. This chapter guides students how to determine the rate of discharge,
the depth of flow, and the velocity. The slope of the bed and the cross-sectional area remain constant over the given length of the channel under the uniform-flow conditions. The same holds for the computation of the most economical cross section when designing the channel.
An important aspect of nuclear reactor core analysis involves the determination of the optimal coolant flow distribution and pressure drop across the reactor core. On the one hand, higher coolant flow rates will lead to better heat transfer coefficients and higher Critical Heat Flux (CHF) limits. On the other hand, higher flows rates will also in large pressure drops across the reactor core, hence larger required pumping powers and larger dynamic loads on the core components.
Hydraulic conductivity is the most important property of geological formations as the
flow of fluids and movement of solutes depend on it. Among fluids, water and
contaminant migration beneath, the ground surface have become critical for water
resource development, agriculture, site restoration and waste disposal strategies.
A simple model of earnings, operating cash flows, and accruals developed in this section generates an explanation for the negative serial correlation in operating cash flow changes. Increases (decreases) in sales generate contemporaneous outlays (inflows) for working capital increases (decreases) that are followed in the next period by cash inflows (outflows). The result is negative serial correlation in cash flow changes. Accruals exclude the contemporaneous one-time outflows for working capital from the current period's earnings and incorporate forecasts of permanent future cash inflows.
Results obtained from fixed effect and ordinary least squares are indifferent. However, results
based on fixed effect model yield more insightful interpretation. The outcomes from fixed effect model
help indicating that three determinants affecting mutual fund growth are types of AMCs,
Administrative expense ratio, and size of AMCs. Types of AMCs or dummy variables are used to
represent distribution channel and parent reputation.
Paradoxically, skin is both a primary barrier to systemic absorption of topically
exposed chemicals and a portal to systemic delivery of transdermal medicaments.
Knowledge of the factors that determine both extent and rate of chemical flux across
the skin is an important component of both toxicology and pharmacology studies.
The aim of this book is to provide current approaches and techniques by which
dermal absorption may be quantitated utilizing end points relative to these two
The consolidated income statement and consolidated statement of cash flows include the
revenues and expenses and cash flows of companies that are no longer in the Group up to the
date on which the related holding was sold or the company was liquidated, and those of the
new companies included in the Group from the date on which the holding was acquired or the
company was incorporated through year end.
Revenue and expenses associated with discontinued operations are presented in a separate line
on the consolidated income statement.
Thai mutual funds industry has grown drastically with compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of
16.97% during 2006 to 2010. Fixed income funds play an important role determining industry growth
as proportion of asset under management of fixed income funds to total asset under management was
approximately 72% in 2010. Among fixed income fund product, deposit substitute product or MMF
takes the largest proportion of total asset under management of fixed income funds. Equity mutual fund
growth was driven by large flow of investment from LTF and RMF due to tax incentive.
